What is the ideal protein intake?
The ideal amount of protein intake will vary depending on individual factors such as activity level, weight, and muscle mass. The general guideline is to consume 1 gram of protein per pound of bodyweight.
What are the best sources of protein?
There are many great sources of protein, but some of the best include lean meats, fish, eggs, dairy, and protein replacement shakes.
Should I eat a low-carb diet?
This depends on your current goals. Carbohydrates are fuel for the body so if you are training hard you may want to increase your carb intake. However, if you are cutting weight often cutting out carbs is an easy way to stay in a caloric deficit.
How many grams of fat should I consume?
Again, this will depend on individual factors such as activity level and weight. A good guideline is to consume 0.5 grams of fat per pound of bodyweight. You may increase or decrease this amount depending on if you are cutting or bulking.
